  • Another Amazing Sport with Little Exposure

    SLACKLINING!
    I recently got involved in this sport which offers many of the same rewards as unicycling. A very quick and simple set up while offering endless opportunities for fun and fitness. Other than being amazing on foot, my goal is to uni on the line. Iv'e seen a few videos of it and am looking forward to the opportunity. Iv'e already got my 3 and 4yr old loving it.

    Finally, after 6 1/2 years of research and focus groups, Just One Wheel will be opening the first Unicycle Training and Balance center in the country here in Plainview New York this summer.
    Other than Unicycles we will have many various and fun balance aids including Slack Lines
    If your local or going to be, please stop in check us out & have FUN on ONE. You will experience something you never thought possible.

        One of my cow orkers brought a slackline to the office on a recent Friday, and we were messing around with that while some of the others tried my unicycle.
        It must have looked a bit like a circus seminar to some of the other denizens of the building...

          hmm... the last time a sport piqued my interest from afar... it was unicycling! A year later, I bought a 24" nimbus! Slacklining feels quite the same...

                I've done it casually for a wee while, it's heaps of fun.

                  You need to make them 'orkers' beforehand...

                  And slacklining looks very fun for me. Only it is quite stationary, but that may be an advantage sometimes.

                    They're hideously fun. I used to slack at the beach every weekend. Then I got lazy. We're starting again this weekend.

                      I got my first slackline last year. I got a longer line a month ago so I could use some trees at the local park. My son (17) likes slacklining - for a "yoof" he's not bad. And my daughter (12) is a balance natural. She learned unicycling in about 2 hours (at most) and slacklining in a few minutes.

                      I think unicycling and slacklining are complementary - both aiding balance and the development of core muscles.

                        Interesting. It's funny, I was talking to my dad a few days ago about how I wanted to learn tightrope walking, but that there was NO WAY we could set it up at the house, or anywhere near it for that matter.
                        Slacklining looks terribly intriguing. It seems like an easier, but more elastic version of tightrope walking. The last time I was so intrigued with a sport was unicycling.
                        Happy cows come from California. Then at one point, PETA got into the mix and claimed that California cows were not happy. Of course, being the animal experts PETA aren't, they were unable to quantify any method of detecting cow happiness. - JF

                          Milosboy, I don't know why I don't know you since you live in Madison, but I have a slackline if you would be interested in trying it. Also, we need to go for a distance ride sometime. PM me.
